We use to play for silver, now we play for GOLD
Hey Pocky Way-Good way to get things started.
Brent's influence so great 89/90
3 tunes from Mydland this show.
Jack Straw-A rockin' version!
>Loser-Old School! Moaning low
Walkin Blues-"leaving in the morning if I have to ride the blind"- "Casey said just before he died fix the blinds so that the bums can't ride if they ride let 'em ride the rods put their trust in the hands of God"
A Little Light- This is somewhat subdued version, by the time this rolled out on summer tour Brent was bringing down the house with this number.
Standing on the Moon- really like this in 1st set.
This tune in fine line of Hunter/Garcia ballads.
Memphis Blues- They overplayed this song if only considering just the tunes the Dead/Dylan played Summer of 87 and never broke out after that tour. --------Nice Space moment before Memphis!
Brent has got the organ going on.
Jerry singing backup for Weir.
Bobby sings w/o nasal whine makes it better tune.
Bird Song-Sweet end of set choice
You know folks talk about the intensity of the East Coast tours just imagine if the Dead had played something like that January 78 West Coast swing every year.
Decent Jam in the Bird Song!
What a way to bring the AIKO, Aiko-- HEY NOW!!!
Victim-someone said perverse?
well how about SOBERING.
Talk about instant mood shift.
(a B.I.O.D.T.L. count before Bob's first lyrics.)
We Can Run-underwhelming after the VICTIM plunge.
Still this is a catchy tune and Garcia bringing the backing vocals doesn't hurt any.
>>>All express train until end of set>>>
>Uncle John's Band-(that's the ticket!)
>Drums>Space>The Wheel>Throwing Stones
>Foolish Heart-nice call instead of slow ballad
>Good Lovin'-"Got to have Love"
e) Knockin- There's our closing ballad.
